Tenerife in January 2022

Plaza de la Iglesia, Santa Cruz de Tenerife

January, of course, begins today with a public holiday and yes, it's a Saturday and yes it does still count as a Public Holiday - with no alternative day off given in lieu - because Saturday is a working day in Spain, where there is still a six-day working week.

  • 1 January: Año Nuevo (New Year)
  • 6 January: Epifanía del Señor (Epiphany of the Lord)

Thursday, 6 January is also a public holiday for Los Reyes (Epiphany). You can be sure that many people will also take Friday off and make a long weekend of it. 

At time of writing, we still do not have the list of municipal holidays for 2022, so those will be added later (below). Due to the ongoing COVID pandemic, we really can't anticipate what - if any - fiestas and events will be able to go ahead and will deal with those as and when.

  • 18 January: Festivity of Nuestra Señora de la Esperanza in La Guancha
  • 20 January: Festivity of San Sebastián in Adeje
  • 22 January: Festivity of San Vicente in Los Realejos
